Concours in the Hills, Scuderia Southwest’s largest high-performance, exotic and collector car event of the year, raised more than $155,000 for Phoenix Children’s Hospital at its Feb. 9 show. The event celebrated its sixth year by shattering donation, attendance, vehicle and sponsorship records. Scuderia Southwest has pledged to donate $500,000 to Phoenix Children’s Hospital. The 2018 and 2019 Concours in the Hills events brought the organization more than halfway to its goal.
Scuderia Southwest and members of the public brought 941 vehicles to Fountain Hills’ Fountain Park for a day of charitable fundraising and horsepower. The more than 20,000 spectators saw vehicles of all kinds, from classic American muscle to historic European sports cars, including very rare cars: the only Lone Star Cobra ever built by Shelby, a D-type and an XK-SS Jaguar. Five helicopters were on display, including two U.S. Marine Corps attack helicopters that flew in from San Diego for the show. There was a display of 21 race cars, including an Indy car driven by Mario Andretti. The show was opened by race drivers and Valley residents Lyn St. James, Arie Luyendyk, Didier Theys and Harley Cluxton, and former Bachelor star Arie Luyendyk Jr.
